Olympus announced the Tough TG-820 iHS rugged digital camera with a new 12-megapixel BSI (Back-Side Illuminated) CMOS sensor and the TruePic VI image processor (originally developed for DSLR cameras) to dramatically improve low-light performance, speed up camera response time, enhance scene and subject recognition and double zoom magnification without losing image quality.

Olympus sets a new benchmark for Waterproof, Shockproof, Freezeproof, Crushproof and Dustproof performance with superb image quality courtesy of the new iHS (Intelligent, High-Sensitivity and High-Speed) family of technologies. Advanced iHS technology ensures that even people with an action-packed lifestyle can capture brilliant photos and 1080p Full HD Videos, no matter how fast their subject is moving or how poor the lighting is.

iHS powers a number of new Olympus features that take all the work out of capturing difficult shots. A blazing quick autofocus and HDR Backlight Adjustment takes a collage of separate photos and blends them into one perfectly exposed image regardless of difficult lighting. Multi-Motion Movie IS (Image Stabilization) records virtually blur-free videos even when you’re moving. The versatile lens on the Olympus Tough TG-820 iHS pulls out wide or zooms in twice as close with its 10x Super-Resolution Zoom that digitally extends the range of the optical zoom with nearly no loss of image quality. Capture beautiful images and videos effortlessly; Enhanced iAuto enables the camera to automatically detect 34 different scenes (portrait, landscape, macro, etc.)

While the new imaging technology delivers optimal results with fast-moving subjects, night scenes and other tricky shots, the Olympus Tough TG-820 iHS is also waterproof to 33 feet, shockproof to 6.6 feet, freezeproof to 14°F and even crushproof to a weight of 220 pounds. It features a 5x wide-angle zoom lens (28 mm-140 mm) and 3.0-inch, 1,030,000-dot HyperCrystal III LCD that offers super high-resolution with scratch-resistant, anti-reflective coatings for added protection and better visibility in bright and low light.
